O'Brien Tries to Weaponize Roe
Concord, N.H. - On the 47th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, Republican Senate candidate Bill O'Brien continues his attacks on abortion rights, and on his primary challengers. Every Republican challenging Senator Jeanne Shaheen opposes abortion and would take away a woman’s right to choose, but O'Brien has made his opposition to abortion the centerpiece of his campaign:
O'Brien has attacked the other candidates for even acknowledging that Roe vs. Wade is settled law.
O'Brien supports the Alabama abortion law that bans abortion in all cases, including rape and incest.
O'Brien even likened abortion to slavery and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
"If Bill O'Brien had his way, abortion would be outlawed in New Hampshire and across the country, with zero exceptions," said NHDP spokesperson Holly Shulman. "Ever since he tried to defund Planned Parenthood as Speaker of the New Hampshire House, O'Brien has become even more extreme on abortion policy, and in the Senate he has vowed to stand with Ted Cruz in his efforts to overturn Roe. New Hampshire Democrats are never going to let that happen."
